Two Rivers of Marlborough Tributary Pinot Noir (2021)

Offering great value, the delicious 2021 vintage (5*) is a single-vineyard, Southern Valleys red, hand-harvested from 17-year-old vines, matured for 11 months in French oak cuves (4,500 litres), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deep ruby, it is fragrant, mouthfilling and very finely textured, with concentrated, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, savoury notes, and a lovely balance of complexity and approachability. Full of youthful drive, it's a 'seamless' wine, for drinking now or cellaring.
